Good Friday, 3rd April in Weaver's Square, Heptonstall


Pace Egg 2014

St George he went a-wandering, along the Pennine Way
He went up hill and then down dale, and thought that he might stay
Bold Slasher went a-wandering a-looking for a fight
He came upon St George up high. Have a go?
Yes he thought he might
The Doctor went a-wandering regardless of the weather
A bottle of nipnap in his hand, he said "Ee well I never"
The Prince he went a-wandering, making his bells to ring
After a while he started to flag, and then he started to sing
The King he went a-wandering, a-wandering by himself
He got lost among the hills, he thought he saw an elf!
Hector went a-wandering, or rather more a-run
He found the others up the hill, and asked to join the fun
Tosspot came a-capering, he followed a diversion
He got the drinks in down the pub, and then? Its not quite certain
And so dear reader do come out, come find the Pennine Loop
To Hebden Bridge. To Heptonstall. To cheer our merry troupe

The Hillmillies as always will be dancing between performances.
